2017-08-02 Recovery Day 149

Today was another busy morning. After getting up, having breakfast, it was time to get ready for the Docent Delta News and Coffee Talk down at the Big Break Visiting Center. Since I am not allowed to drive, Ed Valenzuela a fellow Docent, had agreed to pick me up and later drop me off. It was great to get outside again, and even better to join the get-together talking about the future impact of global warming on our water supply. The whole outing took 2 1/2 hours. Pain wise the only pain that I felt was my shoulder-back-shoulder pain.

Getting back home I rested since the outing did take some energy out of me. Resting also served me to get ready for my appointment at the cancer center for Blood Work and Bone Marrow Biopsy. After some resting it was time to go to the Cancer Center for the Blood Work and Bone Marrow Biopsy. The Blood Work was a test that everything was ok, not to low, for the Biopsy. Since it was ok, the next step was the Bone Marrow Biopsy, which took about 45 minutes.

The Biopsy took more energy out of me then I had anticipated, so Dianne drove me home so that I could rest for the rest of the day. Getting back home, I rested for about an hour when my stomach started to get a bit upset. I was able to control it, which included skipping dinner to resting instead.

The next few hours I watch some TV, but it was hard to follow the story line as I dozed of constantly. I finally wend upstairs to rest and sleep.

In summary, today was a very good day, even with the issue of lack of energy. I am looking forward to tomorrow, hoping for another good day!
